Around 12 months ago, a number of our members attended a Biker Down course put on by Cheshire Fire & Rescue. I’m sure that all those who attended would agree that the content and quality of the course was excellent.
Biker Down is a course aimed at motorcyclists of all ages and experience. The free course offers people the chance to learn practical skills to help avoid being involved in a crash, as well as essential first-aid training and advice on what to do should they find themselves first on the scene of a crash where someone is injured. If you were the first on the scene of an accident involving a biker, would you know what to do? Would you know who is most at risk, how to protect the area or whether you should remove the helmet of a downed rider? Actions taken in the first few moments after an accident can be crucial in minimising injuries and can make a real difference to the lives of those involved.
In addition to essential first aid training, the course provides information on initial scene management, how to get the best out of riding your bike and the Science of Being Seen.

The course is being held on Sunday 10 March 2019 at Cheshire Fire & Rescue Safety Central, Cliff Lane, Lymm, WA13 0TE, (opposite Lymm Poplar 2000 Services) from 12:00pm until 4:00pm.
THIS IS A FREE COURSE AND ATTENDING COULD LITERALLY SAVE LIVES!
